Please excuse the mess as we are in the process of spring cleaning and getting ready to throw on some new duds. Thanks for your understanding.
German artist Katherina Truzinski has been glimpsed by TIF in quickly passing this “sight” and that “site” but usually without a path to the origin. It was a pleasant surprise to stumble upon here site and view here mixed media sculptures and collage. Her sculptures utilize the space they inhabit to create layered structures that closely cross-over into her collage, and vice versa.
Serbian artist and designer, Ana Kraš, lives and works in New York. She’s quite notable and shouldn’t need much of an introduction but we couldn’t help but share her work. From her lamp designs, to the photography of them, to the spaces in which they exist, it all has Ana’s visual signature. Eclectically curated and utterly simple, we are happy to have Ana’s work on the site. Enjoy.
San Francisco artist Ryan De La Hoz has been on the TIF radar for years. Why we haven’t shared his work before you ask? Shame on us. He is a prolific maker of paintings, sculptures, collage and drawings. He is also a frequent contributor to the great Beautiful Decay. He has a show opening in SF at RVCA/VASF Gallery this Friday March 15th, 7-10pm. Go support and enjoy his work.
Whilst on a hunt through the wilds of Instagram, the work of Chad Kouri quickly caught an eye. Chad is a visual renaissance man hailing form Chicago who’s work touches on almost all mediums and easily avoids any one genre. Read more about Chad here. He has too much work to share in one post so please go enjoy his work and follow along his many projects and blog.
New York painter Hayal Pozanti makes work that unites space and shape together in a 2D format that on first take feels haphazard and free. But upon further looking, the work exudes a purposeful and particular placement with structural significance that kneads negative and positive space into an abstract visual dance.
Two artists, MOMO + El Tono, installed pieces of found wood with a hand saw and rubber mallet, into architectural voids, doors and window spaces around Besançon, France. Affixing the wood using only tension to hold them in place opens a nearly limitless number of arrangement possibilities in spaces around the city. The result goes almost unnoticed as artwork until the collective body is recognized and associated as an art installation.
